The update.

Postby Striket1234 » Sun May 26, 2013 5:54 am

I just wanted to know everyone's thoughts and what they think will be included in the new update? I was also thinking, I think that the developers should make sure that when they add updates, they have a balance of new features and bug fixes. It's no fun to have a game with a lot of stuff but its all broken. Though, I do think the have a pretty good balance, I just wish they would fix more bugs.

Ps. I wonder if they could improve lag?

The devs say'd: "Every alpha will breaks the game"
so, bugfixes, balancing and improvement for beta not alpha.

kind regards

Just to clarify: It's not a game yet, it's an Alpha. Alpha stage of every software is buggy as hell, because bugfixing is part of what the Beta stage is all about.

can't see that the game is all broken. I enjoy playing the game.

Unfortunately most people don't understand what an alpha is all about or what they actually brought to get access to the alpha and what they can expect or demand....

I understand its alpha and all. I really do. I also wasn't saying that everything is broken. I was saying if they don't balance the game with bug fixes, then the game could turn to be broken. At the moment though, it's pretty stable for me at least.

That's because it IS broken, it's an Alpha, again. And bugfixes come later.

Well, if you think about it, I'm sure, that Chris and Mark will not publish a totally broken and unplayable build. The game will be playable, but we should all expect bugs. We should even expect bugs that will not get fixed for a while. That's whats an alpha is about. As long the game is playable, I would prefer new content...

And as today, they always fixed some bugs und changed things in the community's favor

Who doesn't enjoy the occasional Worker picking up a delivery truck, carry it to the garbage area and stick it in a 1Kg garbage bag?

the game BROKEN? Man, did you play alpha 2 before? Now that, my friend, is a broken build. Alpha 8 and forward? Perfect in comparison. Having every prisoner being permanently stuck in handcuffs in one spot is what I consider broken!

Amen, if you want broken, go play alpha 1, when people got stuck in medical beds, prisoners idly sat soiling themselves in their cells and doing absolutely nothing about it.
